Other comments: There are three shipwrecks in this area, HMS Venerable HMS Savage and a German E boat destroyer the T189. None of these wrecks are wreck shaped, just plates strewn about the seabed. You need a few days of calm weather to get good visibility here also the nearest public toilets are Paignton Harbour Toilets.
